Review: 'An engaging, unusual and completely engrossing read'
- Beverly Birch author of 'Rift'

What is Oliver's strongest yearning? Is it that he'd be reunited with his missing father? No, it's about his hair. He survived a brain tumor, endured chemotherapy, and now wants nothing more than to stop being bald as an egg. He simply yearns for the return of the first fuzz. Seemingly a vain yearning, true, but just talk to any juvenile who's had a bout with cancer and see what they really want out of life. Oliver is thrown in a new world, as discovering his psychic talents. The blossoming of a simpatico friendship with the older but fragile Aura teaches him about coping with illness in life. A love interest in mysterious Justine. The continuing companionship of his indefatigable cat Flop.

Revealed here for the first time the great detective's role in WW11. December 1939 Germany and Great Britain are in the fog of the phoney war. The First Sea Lord Churchill knows that England is not nearly ready for the fight. Four British spies have perished in strange circumstances in Nuremberg trying to discover the biggest secret of the Third Reich. Churchill turns to the only man he knows who can solve the mystery. But Lord Sherlock Holmes is now 83, Dr Watson even older. Are they still up to it?

'Chocolate will never seem quite the same again. With an irresistable, high-quality Goon-like zaniness, this dynamically-paced thriller follows its own lager-than-life logic. Not to be missed.'
